Native to Cornwall’s rugged landscapes, Liam Jordan is an alt-rock artist who began his musical journey at a young age in school bands.
After many years of playing regular venue residencies and in folk clubs around the UK, Jordan set out to work on his first major release and self-titled debut album, the 2018 release of which saw its lead single ‘Tap at My Window’ featured in Richer Unsigned’s ‘Best of 2018’ playlist in association with Q Magazine.
Shortly after playing Manchester Folk Festival, Jordan joined a roster of great Americana and folk artists on the independent label Fish Records.
Fusing folk, country, gospel, rock with strong subject matter and powerful and emotive production, the album nods a respectful head to song writing greats such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young.
‘Liam Jordan … nails his colours to the mast as a certified talent. One to check out and keep a close eye on.’ (Matt Owens of Noah And The Whale)
‘A great new voice in Americana and folk music’ (Tom Russell)
